I just read about a 72 year old woman who gave birth to her first child at the age of 66 and now she wants another. Do you think she is being selfish? Or should her children be greatful for having their mother, if only for a short time?
Personally, I think 60 should be the cutoff. Women in their 40's and even 50's will still be able to watch their children grow up. But giving birth at 66, you might live to be 100 but will you remember it?
This is assuming we all live healthy full lives of course.
Just my opinion though! :)

When menopause hits, so it's different for each woman.
Practically? For me personally, less than 40- I did not want minor children at home or college tuition at the same time as retirement. My MIL had her last at 47............too old, IMO.
